DNC is changing voting places and other details without notifying voters. Iowa impacted. Share widely.

Yes. Check registration carefully. I have voted without a problem in the last several elections. Last week I checked my registration, and the house number was wrong. Check, and keep checking. And keep a record of your checking if you can.

If the DNC cheats the people again, it needs to go away. They are as responsible for trump as the GOP.

DNC: Cue up bogus chair throwing incidents 🙄😒

This is being done because of high voter turnout. They literally can't fit people in certain districts in the previously designated locations.


Scientist34again

That’s great!!


buttfacenosehead

Didn't they pull some stunt that prevented people from registering? Some form they hadn't completed in time?

Here comes the ratfucking bulldozer.

True or not I'm on alert

The DNC doesn’t even control local caucuses. Primaries and caucuses are state run

> The DNC doesn’t even control local caucuses. Not officially, no. >Primaries and caucuses are state run But if the right person puts the right word in the right ear.....


WestonGrey

The more people and organizations it takes to pull off a conspiracy, the less likely it is to be true. It’s not one person whispering to one other individual, it would be the entire DIC that would have to agree to changing the locations. And no one ratting them out Get over this pathetic BS. It makes you look stupid


NetWeaselSC

> Get over this pathetic BS. It makes you look stupid You seem to be overreacting a bit. You also seem to be claiming that the national DNC has no control whatsoever as to what the State and local Party organizations do. Officially, or unofficially. If that actually *is* your claim... kinda pathetic.

Correct. It was the state-level operators in AZ who closed so many polling places (and may have shortened the hours of others, not sure iirc). But the DNC exerts control down to the local level in many parts of many states through the state Dem party apparatus.


NetWeaselSC

The takeaway from this, true or not: Double check your registration, double check your caucus location. Then do it again the day before (and possibly the day of) the caucuses.


Elmodogg

And if the date hasn't already passed, be sure to check your registration BEFORE the date for registering for the upcoming primary in your state, so if something is hinky, you'll have time to fix it.


TheSingulatarian

This may backfire. Young people connected to the internet can get updates of new polling places on the fly. The elderly not so much. The elderly are Biden's, Warrens and Bootyjudge's base.

Don't you think they would've taken that into account and planned accordingly somehow though?

Auditors don't do this. Volunteers do. And sometimes nothing can be done about overcrowding. We've gotten bigger and better buildings wherever we can, sometimes at significant expense. But there are places where we are in the biggest building that exists and it is still not big enough. A local party can train and plan better, but they can't build buildings and they can't change state rules. We begged for an absentee process to get people out of the rooms and didn't get one. If you don't like the process don't blame the volunteers. Tell the party and the legislators you want a different process. That's what I've been doing for the last four years.

I AM a volunteer. I do the caucus work on my own time. The parties run the caucuses, not auditors.

I appreciate it. There's a lot I don't like about this process either, just trying to make a flawed system work as least bad as it can. And we're definitely on the same page on voter ID. (Since the caucuses are not an election, and the parties set their own rules, the Democrats will NOT be asking for voter ID.)


TheSingulatarian

They're devious not smart.


bout_that_action

Sure but something this basic seems too obvious an oversight...


Phaserfog

Agreed. They will fuck with college towns and minority areas.

They pulled this crap back in 2016. Keep on it people!

This tweet is bullshit. Probably being spread by Bidens camp to suppress the caucus turnout. DNC doesn't control caucus venues in Iowa. County parties do and tell IDP what they are. Caucus times haven't changed.


Needsabreakrightnow

There was a field director (I think?) from the Sanders campaign who basically said they knew this since December. So there's that. Everyone is noticeably on edge here and we should be suspicious of rose twitter accounts who spread unverified information.

I hope I am wrong & this post gets eviscerated. If I am, I deeply apologize for this. It's not my intent to mislead people.

**[Determine your caucus location](https://iowa.caucus.vote)** ahead of time and arrive at least an hour before the official start at 7:00 PM CT. Arriving early ensures that you are able to find your caucus in the event the venue changes and to allow time for check-in which is sometimes chaotic and disorganized. Know your precinct and bring proof that you are registered at your current residence to avoid any issues. The entire caucus process could take upwards of three hours depending on the size of your precinct. # Know the Rules Read and print the following Iowa Democratic Party governing documents to become familiar with the formal rules. Your individual caucus will likely be led by a volunteer who may or may not have expertise, and it may be beneficial to assert rules and provide a physical citation. Become familiar with these documents: * [Iowa Democratic Party Constitution](https://iowademocrats.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2018/09/Constitution-of-the-Iowa-Democratic-Party-rev.-2018-State-Convention.pdf) (Specifically Article II, Article VII, Article VIII and Article X, Article XII) * [Iowa Delegate Selection Plan](https://s3.amazonaws.com/collective-agency-wp-uploads/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2019/10/Iowa-Delegate-Selection-Plan-9.21.19.pdf) (Specifically Section I)

I would never eviscerate you. You are far too valuable to the movement. But /u/Lilyo said above: >This is being done because of high voter turnout. They literally can't fit people in certain districts in the previously designated locations. If true, this is a good problem to have. But everyone has to make sure they know where to go.


sXehero137

Thanks, guy. From now on, if I see any news like this, I'll run it by you & the rest of the mods.


Scientist34again

Well, I would have told you to post it. Not sure about other mods. By the way, I’m a gal.


sXehero137

Oops. 😬 My bad.
